Maison Balzac is a collection of perfumed candles and delicate objects created in Sydney, Australia.
Each product is developed as an ode to memories from founder Elise Pioch's childhood in the South of France. “They are like Proust’s madeleine for me! I named the brand after my grand parents, Jeanine and André Balzac, who taught me their sensibility and style.”
From her experience working in fashion in Paris and Sydney, Elise sought to create a range that was both nostalgic and sentimental. Working with makers and perfumers in Australia, France, Japan and China she has created a range of signature objects that evoke olfactive memories or experiences.
Since 2012, Maison Balzac has greatly expanded to become a house of playful hand made objects for everyday life.
Imagined on a warm afternoon spent drawing in wet sand, the petit pompom candle holder conjures images of globular sea-like creatures suspended in the clearest waters. Gently turn their glass perch to fully admire their unusual beauty, floating as if they are rising from the depths to offer you their azure and amber light. If you are patient you may see his large glass friend, the grand pompom, they keep each other company telling stories about all the other pretty jewels spotted on their travels through the waters depths.
